Weekly Highlights

Hey everyone! With the large number of blogs (growing everyday), and the new emphasis toward #FOAMed, we decided to do a weekly post w/ highlights from around the interwebs. We tried to find a few that are still relavent at the med student level, and especially important as we slowly head toward the transition between medical student and residency.

We always have cool posts and interesting articles linked on our Twitter, so join us there too!

  • “Why are you ordering that test?” Asked by every attending when you present your plan and very important question to think about. [LINK = EM Res Podcast] 
  • Tweet pearls complied by the guys over at Academic Life in EM [LINK = AcademicLifeinEM] 
  • Study shows ED docs are as good as radiologists at gallbladder ultrasound. Learn from the pros at ultrasound podcast (and do forget to get their 1 min ultrasound app for you phone. One of the best resources for quick tips right before performing ultrasounds)

  • Speaking of ultrasound apps, check out Sonospot for a collection of websites and phone apps for bedside ultrasound [LINK = Sonospot]
